India's first Prime Minister famously said "Don't spare me Shankar" (a leading Indian cartoonist). But #Gandhi did not spare Shankar ;) I wrote about this in my book Caricaturing Culture.

#Gandhi tapped the power of #cartoons & #public communication early into his journalistic career in #SouthAfrica. Cartoons could be Satyagraha (truth force). His #newspaper the Indian Opinion published and interpreted British cartoons.

The man who shot and killed 26 people at a church in #Texas in 2017 used guns he wouldn’t have been able to purchase if the @USAirForce had properly managed its records.

Article by @IvanPentchoukov (Thread👇)…
On 6 occasions, #Military officials failed to send Devin Kelley’s records to @FBI while the @USAirForce investigated, court-martialed, and imprisoned him for abusing his wife and stepson.
Rather than being an anomaly, the preventable failures that contributed to the massacre are a symptom of a vast problem spanning the entire federal government, according to two experts with decades of experience—Daryll Prescott and Don Lueders.

@MayorAdler #Homeless fights everyday. Many are #MHMR & spend their mental checks on #drugs . They like this #lifestyle , & it's all by choice. All in the same boat #homeless,
#insecure , #depressed , #stressed , #bipolar , #schizophrenic ; plus, they're #smoking #K2. Their mind isn't right
@MayorAdler Those providing GOVERNMENT services to the homeless like failed accountability @caritasofaustin and those involved in what's dubbed the “ #HomelessIndustrialComplex ," are invested in hiding the truth.
@MayorAdler @caritasofaustin We must ask how misrepresenting or even lying about what is going on, on our streets, might benefit

Its called 21st Century Policing, an executive order signed by Obama, who took away the voice of LE and their knowledge/experience and & gave it to Academia & Activists such as @chrisharris101 They are in charge of POLICE policies now.
@GregAbbott_TX @chiproytx @DanPatrick

It's like allowing vultures to tell the sheepdog what to do. Refusing to lock criminals up isn't just stupid - it's an attack on OUR rights as a law abiding citizen. We can't allow this to keep happening!…

Here is a look at the past and a glimpse into the future. Austin has experienced many years of explosive growth that brought with it millions of tax dollars. The Austin city government thought and still thinks that the annual cash windfall will never end.
They spent money like crazy without much thought to the future. A few Boondoggles: The Dell contract to link all city departments. The Waller Creek project that had to be stopped and redesigned due to height issues. The purchase of a wood fired power plant. Downtown toilets.
That is just a few but they illustrate how incompetent @MayorAdler 's @austintexasgov is, and there is a direct correlation at how amateur incompetent reporters such as @daustinsanders w/ the @AustinChronicle believe that they actually give Austinites THE STRAIGHT DOPE.

#BorderCrisis Peak, #Mexico Cooperation, and Judicial Wrangling

The year began with President Trump declaring a #NationalEmergency at the southern #Border.…
The #BorderCrisis escalated, and in May, nearly 133,000 #IllegalAliens were apprehended by #BorderPatrol, with a further 11,000 presenting at ports of entry without legal documentation.

By the end of fiscal 2019, almost 1 million people had entered the US illegally.
Over 600,000 of them were either individuals within a family unit or unaccompanied minors—both vulnerable populations that often arrived sick and required more care than #BorderPatrol was set up to provide.

I am happy to share today my latest updated #Texas #Resister list, as part of my effort to highlight #TexasResisters, to do my part to try to help #TurnTexasBlue in 2020. As with previous versions, this list has 3 parts.
The 3rd group are those included in my previous #TexasResister lists. The 2nd group are those new followers I’ve added since October. I’ve separated it this way to help those who saw my previous posts focus on the 2nd group for new followers.
As I did last time, my first few posts will highlight Texas Democrats running for key offices, including Texas Senate & competitive 2020 US House races. I had intended to start making recommendations for certain races, but feel I haven’t had time to properly vet many candidates.

JFK was assassinated #Dallas
but so was someone else in Dallas, Tx.
just minutes after,
blocks away,
by the same shooter,
known by the nickname JFK, because
he just so happened to look like JFK

That is just the beginning in a series of "coincidences"
The JFK official story is as follows:

Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK from a window on the 6th floor of a book depository, where he worked
Fled on foot.
Ran into Officer Tippid, shot and killed him
#Oswald fled the Tippit scene on foot.
Snuck into a movie theather and was then arrested and brought to a holding cell.

Nobody can ask Oswald though because when being tranfered from the holding cell a man named Jack Rudy shot and killed Oswald.

What do #Texas drivers licenses & @thebeatles John Lennon have to do with the #DACA case before @Scotus? In 2012 Obama approved the DACA regulation giving 'deferred action' to certain young immigrants who came here illegally as children, so they could work & wouldn't be deported
In 2015, Obama tried to extend that to the parents of American children in what it called DAPA, but Texas' then AG @GregAbbott_TX sued to stop. The state argued it incurred damage in the cost of having to give driver's licenses to all these immigrants.…
The Obama admin argued it was simply using decades of govnt authority to decide who to deport -- a concept called deferred action that was first publicized when it was used to save John Lennon from deportation because he'd had weed in London. (US was mad)…

The “military grade weapons” are those the United States sold to Guatemala over a 36 year period beginning in 1960-1996. Their gov’t was fighting with the farmers. Eventually, an armistice was reached, & the farmers went back to their fields. The gov’t police had no incomes.
2/ What to do? Sell them to the Cartels, of course. The mortars, rocket grenades, and heavy artillery they possess came straight from our own government during those years. Please watch. #Guatemala #Mexico #Cartels
3/ No doubt, our government did not fully appreciate the long-term consequences of sending #Guatemala aid in the form of weapons after we had deposed their dictator in 1954. As with any other country where we have meddled, there is always a penalty for inference. Now the Cartels
